“You learn to love
the parts
that used to disgust you.
Those you cannot bear
to adore,
you learn to accept.
Hating yourself is
exhausting.
It is time for you
to rest.”

Michelle K., It is Time. (via onlinebabe)

Bloody Victorian ceramic Ladies by Jessica Harrison

Based in Edinburgh, artist Jessica Harrison creates macabre ceramic figures. Using found porcelain figurines of women with fair skin and fancy dresses as a base, Harrison cuts pieces from and adds gore to the dainty ladies. Harrison’s tools of the tradeinclude epoxy resin putty and enamel paint.

If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.

The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.

If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign—body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on—alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction.

When my hair was blonde, I cut up some blue tights for a cute tight head wrap. Now that I’m blue, I can finally hold up the short dreadies in the back of my head with it and tight my longer dreads into a high pony tail which I like to do, and it all blends in together in cute way. #winning #locs #dreadlocks #naturalhair #bluehair #adierose

Recently I was in the shopping mall  and I happened to hear a conversation between some people discussing their dislike for this black girl’s hairstyle who had just previously walked by. One of them called the girl’s  hairstyle “ghetto”, then followed up by saying  “I hate when black girls put all them colors in their hair”. It led me to ask this question, what is ghetto really?  Because I have seen similar hairstyles with Caucasian women never labeled as ghetto. The word “ghetto” has a negative stigma attached to it and it seems like ghetto has become synonymous for “Black People”.What determines whether something is Ghetto or not? Why do some people consider one ghetto and not the other? Is being crafty with the supplies available to me ghetto?  Is being creative while black unacceptable? Does the price of something determine whether you should consider it ghetto or not? Or maybe I’m wrong…. Please do share your thoughts….@hated_logic

You’re exactly right. Just like when Black people improvise, it’s ghetto, but let a middle-to-upper class white person do it, it’s a lifehack, or being thrifty, or economical, or thinking out of the box, or brilliant, or whatever.

THIS FOR ALL OF ETERNITY
